Figuring out which running backs to stick in your Fantasy Football lineup in Week 1 is always tough, but it might be even tougher in Week 2. Because now we actually have some information, and that’s dangerous. Because it’s only one week’s worth of information, which makes it easy to overreact. Should you bench someone like Mark Ingram because he got fewer snaps and lost a touchdown to J.K. Dobbins in Week 1? Maybe, but it was just one game against a Browns team that fell flat, so Ingram could be a bigger part of the game plan this week if the Texans are more competitive.
You run the risk of overcorrecting for what we saw in Week 1, in other words. Things will get a little more clear as we get more information — though injuries will create more complications every week — but for now, those start and sit calls are even tougher to figure out than usual right now. Jamey Eisenberg’s Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em calls are here for Week 2 running backs to help you find answers. And don’t forget to check out Heath Cummings’ running back preview for more help with matchup notes, numbers to know, and more.
